Idiotic Ways People Defend The False Doctrine of Hell
I was just reading about a discussion someone was having with a christian concerning god's unfair practice of sending people to hell when they never heard the gospel. To make it short, this person's answer was "those who haven't heard the gospel automatically go to heaven". One must hear the word of God to reject it and only those who reject it can go to hell. UUUUuuuummmm, . . . . OK? So who's the bastard that told those poor Africans about christ, making them eligible for hell?!!
For those who haven't read my other posts, I am very clear that there is one way to salvation, and that is through Jesus Christ. I believe in the ultimate salvation of all mankind and am certain that the scriptures provide a wealth of support for this. I believe that all go through God's judgments, either in this physical life or they will be judged in the LOF Great White Throne Judgment. I believe judgment is for all non believers, non repentant evil doers and especially, those who teach false doctine. The very worst doctrine being that God has created a "physical" chamber of fire to torture physical bodies of sinners for all eternity. But how do ministers of deception get their monster of a god off of the hook for such evil?
Well, first they invent a doctrine called "free will". This way, god has nohing to do with people going to hell. Then they make evil invent itself through some ficticious story about some perfect angel named Lucifer turning evil. So, Lucifer somehow invents his own power to deceive the masses of humanity and god couldn't stop this. My favorite part of this story is how christians think that heaven is some location in space and when Lucifer was thrown out, the implication is that gravity pulled him to the Earth where he now lives. But what is Satan's motivation for doing the things against God?
Which brings me to another defense of the stupid hell doctrine:
Why do peope go there? Satan did it!! Why? Because he doesn't want to go to hell alone. Poor Satan's gonna be lonely, so he's recruiting company to share in the painful burning. Some "religulous" christians think that Satan will sit on the throne of hell and pleasure himself by torturing everybody for eternity. So, in other words, Satan is being rewarded for all of his sins. I don't deny that Satan is rewarded, but his reward is right now. as he dines on the carnal flesh of humans. But christians want to put his reward in human terms. Because what does it mean for Satan to dine on the dust of the Earth (us)? What is his satisfaction? We obviously don't know because we don't think as Satan thinks. But what is clear, is that Christians fail to realize that most sinning is to serve our carnal and fleshly desires right now. Not at a later time, such as when Satan is burning in hell, he'll have all of those people to play parchessy with. I have a suggestion though. How about we believe the scriptures that assert that God created Satan for a purpose?
The worst defense of hell though, is when christians say that christ died on the cross to save people from hell. Well, I guess it didn't work because these ministers think that most of humanity is still going there. But these people insist that Jesus would never have succomed to all of that torture and humiliation if he was not saving people from some torturous, eternal demise. I guess it never occurred to these nitwits that we live in flawed bodies, experience ever increasing pain from birth, have constant stress to contend with, and when it's all over, we die like an animal. You. . . . . .you think that perhaps. . . . .this is what we're saved from? I mean, without Christ dying on the cross, we'd have to experience all of this for nothing. Worms would cover our eternal bed. We would never exist again. I had a coworker for some years who parroted the same nonsense about christ saving people from hell. This lady had a kidney transplant and several other health problems. Maybe her hope should be that she will be saved from such a warped body.
Anyhow, there are some real inventive ways that people defend the hell doctrine. I've heard that hell is justice for living in sin. Yeah, like we were given fair warning. Come on!! The only way such a warning would be sufficient is if every time we sin, we are shown a vision of our bodies screaming while burning in real fire (oh my god, why don't I die!!! you would be screaming). For good measure, we would have to also experience hot coals burning our ass every time we have naughty thoughts. That's the only way we could be fairly warned about such a horrific after life. And it still wouldn't be justified because how can someone experience an eternity of burning for sins in the short period of one's life? It would be bad enough to watch TBN for eternity without the fire. . . . . .on second thought, I'd take the fire rather than the TBN.
There are several bible verses that are used to defend this unholy doctrine of devils, but not one of them pans out. The scriptures for universal salvation are laced thoughout the bible. But this hub was to make a mockery out of those who defend this sick doctrine. Well, there is no defense. Every attempt christians make to defend this doctrine furthur shows their ignorance and vanity. Most people look on the events of the holocaust with anger. But hell mongering christians will have you believe that the jews who died in those camps had just experienced the beginning of an eternity with far worse torture.
In closing, people are going to believe whatever they are led to believe (including myself). But when defending your beliefs, make sure you have explored all of the possible ways that people will make swiss cheese out of them. I guarantee that orthodox churchianity has so many swiss cheese doctrines that it is a miracle that so few stand against them. But that hell doctrine is just plain sick. . . . .and really stupid.
